Literary Lines–August 6

“We are not grand because we are at the top of the food chain or because we can alter our environment–the environment will outlast us with its unfathomable forces and unyielding powers.  But rather than be bound and defeated by our insignificance, we are bold because we exercise our will anyway, despite the ephemeral and delicate presence we have in this desert, on this planet, in this universe”

–from Aron Ralston’s Between a Rock and a Hard Place
